The Australian takes on the ‘dazzle’ of Twitter

Dr Mumbo loves a good editorial by The Australian and today’s efforts denouncing The Guardian, the ABC, Fairfax, Twitter and more generally “the interweb” deserves some acknowledgment.

Personally, Dr Mumbo can’t get past the paragraph which denounces not only Twitter but the scourge of “web-first publishing.”

“Yet that can’t be said of all media outlets, especially when seasoned journalists are being traded for ones unable to see beyond the dazzle of the instantaneous fix of Twitter or web-first publishing,” write The Australian.

Unsurprisingly the piece has caused a stir in the Twittersphere. Here are some of Dr Mumbo’s favourite tweets:
